Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

Publisher's Summary

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!

In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

    "Overall great book. Entertaining..."

    But totally off the mark when she discusses marriage (which is okay, because she is single and just giving her opinion... And it is only a small part of the book).

    Worth listening to if you love Mindy.

    "Loved it!"

    I loved hearing Mindy's story. Sometimes I found myself stopping and thinking about the things she said and seeing a different perspective. It was interesting, I loved that it was read by Mindy, and Mindy was so open about her life, including some hard times.

    "You go Mindy Coco"

    I don't want to be Mindy's best friend, she has a couple already. I want to be the friend of the best friend. The one who gets invited to the same parties and gets to Instagram group photos that Mindy just happens to be in. Enough of an interaction that she knows me as that short Asian girl with the cute flats but not too close where she gives me gyno recommendations. As the pretend friend of the best friend I would tell you that you need to listen to this. Listen then go eat ice cream. Mindy would approve.

    "Okay but not great."

    Kahling is sweet and driven; however, there may be better books on the market in this genre--solid but unspectacular.

    "I love Mindy Kaling"

    So honest and down to Earth, Mindy makes me want to be her bff just so I can experience the Irish goodbye and other acts of silliness.

    "Worth a Listen"

    I liked this. Not quite as funny as I thought it would be, but still good. I enjoyed her thoughts and if she writes another book, I'd listen to it too.

    "if you like Mindy Kaling you won't be disappointed"

    It was exactly what I hoped for, lighthearted, witty humour. I read it in one road trip and it helped pass the time.

    "I've never watched her shows so less context"

    There is some good ethnic honesty in Mindy's story but a bit too much whine for guys taste. Yes I voluntarily bought this so my bad but others in her genre have more l levity. If you're a fan don't let my opinion count and go for it.
